A recent study published by Health Affairs, found that around 1.5% of beneficiaries diagnosed with any mental illness and 3.7% of those diagnosed with serious mental illness used telehealth services. From 2004 to 2014, the number of telehealth visits among rural patients with any mental illness rose by 45.1% annually, from 2,365 visits in 2004 to 87,120 visits in 2014. Among rural patients with serious mental illness during the same period, telehealth use rose from 1,040 visits to 50,050 visits between 2004 and 2014, an increase of 49.3% per year. In 2014, 93.5% of telehealth visits for mental health occurred between beneficiaries and telehealth providers in the same state.
